    Default Movie Trivia

    I love reading trivia about various movies:

    Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    1. Nicholas Cage was only 17 when the movie was made and could not have a more prominent role because he was underage and couldn't work the extra hours.
    2. The other cheerleader in the scene where Cindy complains about not getting enough respect during the school spirit assembly is Bruce Springsteen's sister, Pamela
    3. The original rating for the movie was "X" because there was full frontal nudity in the scene with Stacey and Damone.
    4. Justine Bateman turned down the Linda (Phoebe Cates) role so she could star on Family Ties.
    5. Fred Gwynne was originally offered the Mr. Hand role, but he turned it down because he thought the movie was too sexual
    6. Matthew Broderick was going to be Brad but had to turn down the role when his father (James) became terminally ill
    7. The woman in the car next to Brad, who laughs at him in his pirate costume, is Nancy Wilson of Heart (wife of director Cameron Crowe)
    Bluebonnet and panic like this.

    8. The video for the song "Stacy's Mom" paid tribute to the masturbation scene, in a totally gross way (Stacy's boyfriend (they're about 13) is fantasising about Stacy's mom. He masturbates in the bathroom, Stacy opens the door. Instead of being grossed out like Linda, she closes the door with stars in her eyes because she thinks he's jacking off to her).

    Speaking of that, they said that when Cates was filmed walking in on Reinhold, he was holding a giant rubber "marital aid", and that she was genuinely freaked, and they captured the reaction they were looking for.

    I was sad when they got rid of the forums. Clearly, there were many loonies and posts like "the lead actress has an amazing butt, she gave me such a boner!" but there were enlightening convos too.

    I miss their forums too. Really didn't post there but I liked to visit when I watched older movies or tv shows to see the comments.

    Alien:

    • Shredded condoms were used to create the tendons of the alien's jaws.
    • The guts of the dead facehugger consisted of four oysters and a sheep kidney.
    • The guy in the alien suit was a skinny 7'1" Nigerian dude.
    • The film was pitched to producers as "It's like Jaws, but in space"
    • According to Ridley Scott, the final casting was between Sigourney Weaver and Meryl Streep (???)
    • The space suit costumes were so poorly ventilated that the actors kept passing out in them.
    • The slime on the alien is K-Y jelly.
    • The original director was supposed to be Walter "The Warriors" Hill. Hill was also the producer, and he decided that Ridley Scott would be a better director than him for this movie.
    • Harry Dean Stanton's first words to Ridley Scott were "I don't like sci fi or horror movies." Scott hired him anyway.
    • 80% of the camera work on the film was shot by Ridley Scott himself, with a handheld camera.
    • When Ash gets his head knocked off, the insides you see are actually pasta and marbles and colored water.
